Ek43 dosing and distrubution techniques

Recommended Posts

Are you definitely properly zerod?

 

Hello

yes I think so.

 

I am confident of the diff sound of ringing chaf

between burrs, and the scary scraping sound of close burrs.

 

Does 1.2 on the original dial sound to low ?

also what tamper are you using, might be worth getting a perg or the 58.55 torr

 

Unfortunately only a generic 58mm :eek:

 

Perhaps time to upgrade to a posh one . . .

Only way to be certain about zeroing burrs is to take off carrier, thoroughly clean everything, reassemble and bring burrs to contact point. Once beans have been run through, the EK is prone to making all sorts of noises that can be confused with burrs' chirping at point of contact. Once genuine chirping occurs, back off 10 degrees and lock the adjustment knob.

I'm seldom down that close to 0, maybe for mega light roasts. Send me some of your lovely coffee and we can compare :act-up:

With the old burrs I didn't find that I had to nutate, I agree that a bigger tamp will help will probably help out to a degree. I had very bad results when I was dosing direct to the basket from the EK. Since moving to a home made dosing funnel (more along the lines of the mazzer dosing funnel nozzle) and dosing into the centre of the basket I have noticed massive improvements in the consistency of my pours. Obviously there are people out there dosing direct and getting great results so it's really what works for you :)


DE1Pro, EK43 SSP, bloody tasty coffee!

to some degree will depend on the roast and the dose ...

If you have a £2k retail grinder , then i would suggest using decent baskets and a decent fitted tamper too.


I write a blog, it's nothing to do with coffee ...

Does that sound more like it ?

After saying i didn't usually get that close to zero, the beans from HB i've got just now are edging towards that point....
